Thierry Henry, a professional soccer player who lives in the UK wants to build a four story, 5,000 gallon fish tank. Plus, he is going to demolish his £5.9?million north London house “which was completed only in 1999 and is described as one of the finest examples of modern architecture in the UK – and replace it with a larger property.“
The plans call for a total of four 10 feet tall 15 feet long and 3 feet wide fish tanks that would house over “300 fish and take up to one year to get running.” The tanks would be set on top of each other to give the impression that it is one big tank…although most of us know the maintenance on a tank this size would be a major headache. Splitting the tanks up makes it much easier to maintain while still giving a very cool look to guests.
“Henry’s new home will be taller than the existing one and include a bar, a cinema and a swimming pool. Despite spending at least £2?million on rebuild costs, the finished house is likely to be worth at least £10?million. The footballer is keen to highlight the eco-features of the new home, which includes extensive glass panelling to capture natural light and a so-called ‘biodiverse’ roof, which will incorporate plants and trees.”
